Picture in Picture

Latest Release: July 21, 2021

Picture in picture minimizes videos to a corner of the screen, allowing you to multitask in any other app or browser tab. Picture in Picture, or PiP, as it's often shortened to, works at the operating system level, as compared to our floating player, which only minimizes to a corner of the current browser tab and is not viewable when backgrounded. We've added out of the box support across Chrome and Safari on desktop and mobile devices.
